CQWW CW from LN8W – report


Posted: December 3rd, 2008 under Contesting, Hamradio.

I joined the team at LA8W/LN8W in CQWW CW this year as well. I have done this since 2003. Only 4 operators this time with LA8AJA, LA9VDA, LB1GB and LB8IB participating in the M/S HP class. My most memorable moment was when KH7C called in on 160M right after we were spotted by K8AZ. Other memorable moments was when JA called in on their sunrise for a new double mult and USA calling in at their sunset at the same time on 160M. The pile-up from North-America on 40M was also fun. The 4-square really works well on that band.

Comments: The best low band condx ever and the worst ever high band condx at the same time. What are the odds? Congrats to LN9Z(Jan LA9HW, op) for a fantastic SB160 score and thanks to Team LN3Z for yet again inviting Murphy to their place for the WW CW weekend. Giving us time to contest in peace. Memorable moments: Called by KH7C Hawaii on 160m. CE0Y/SM6CUK whispered in on 20m for a double. Called by HS0ZDY on 80m for a double mult when only 9 minutes left of the contest. Plus many more that not comes to mind... We had lots of fun but enough is enough - give us flux, now! Thanks for all the QSO's. Bjorn LB1GB & al.
